Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Supporting the Sea Services; US Navy, US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard, US Flag Merchant Marine

The Navy League devotes time, money and energy to support and improve the well being of American service personnel and their families. Local councils adopt ships and shore commands; reward and honor enlisted personnel of the year; host dinners and balls for military personnel; and visit and support family members left behind when spouses and parents are deployed. In addition, they have planned, executed, and underwritten the ceremonies connected with the commissioning of new Navy ships or openings of new military buildings; raise money and provide volunteer workers for fleet week activities; and host birthday celebrations for the various sea services. In keeping with its educational objective, the Navy League also supports America's young people through successful youth programs, including the US Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Junior ROTC programs providing numerous local and national scholarships.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Increase public awareness and educate the public on the mission of the Navy League of the United States
• Recruit and retain new members for our local Navy League council which supports active duty sea service members and their families (Navy, Coast Guard, Marines, Merchant Marine) as well as the local youth programs that we sponsor (U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, NJROTC Programs)
• Find additional fundraising opportunities
• Find and attract corporate sponsorships and community partners
• Research and apply for additional Grants relevant to our mission

We are continually updating the Fort Lauderdale Navy League and the Fort Lauderdale Sea Cadets websites and social media sites. We hope to gain more visibility for our fundraising efforts and to recruit and retain Navy League council members and new recruits to the Fort Lauderdale Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps youth development organization.
We are continutally researching additional funding sources for our ongoing Capital Campaign to maintain and improve the recently completed Sea Cadet training center. (Officially, the Capital Campaign for the Mary N. Porter Sea Cadet Training Center)
We are host our major annual 5K fundraising event. In 2024 our 12th Annual Pursuit of Honor, Courage, and Commitment 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Fort Lauderdale Sea Cadets and the Wounded Warrior Project will take place on October 12, 2024.

We have successfully sponsored the Commissioning Ceremonies of several US Navy Ships in the past.
We host monthly dinner meetings 8 months a year for our members and guests with excellent guest speakers from our local Sea Service commands. We host members and families from our local Sea Service commands at all our events.
We sponsor networking events during the year where members can interact with active duty sea service members, including the Navy League Day at the Races which was held on March 9. 2024.
We host an Annual Sea Cadet Night where our cadets share their summer training experiences with our Navy League members and Sea Service members.
We sponsor several annual fundraising events including the Black-Tie Seven Seas Gala and the Pursuit of Honor, Courage and Commitment 5K Run/Walk
We publish monthly newsletters to keep members informed.
We receive regular communications from National Headquarters through emails, newsletters, and conference calls. There are also resources made available to all Navy League Members through the National website.
Council Board Members attend National and Regional Conferences and some of our current and former Board Members also serve at the Regional and National levels.
We maintain close contact with the other councils in the Florida Region through monthly conference calls, and share ideas for fundraising and other events.

We have successfully sponsored the Commissioning Ceremonies of several US Navy Ships including the USS Bainbridge (2005), USS Jason Dunham (2010), USS Paul Ignatius (2019) and the US Coast Guard Cutter Richard Etheridge (2012). We are now in the planning stages for the Commissioning of the USS Fort Lauderdale (LPD 28) in July 2022.
Due to our fundraising efforts the Capital Campaign the Mary N. Porter Sea Cadet Training Center construction was completed in July 2022. The Council continues fundraising efforts to maintain and complete any necessary improvements or repairs to the facility.
Council members have donated funds to provide scholarships for sea cadets to attend training events during summer break, weekend excursions, local special events, etc.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
